Southern Comfort Lodge
Ranked #6 of 25 Bulawayo B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 September 2012

We did not stay at the lodge so I cannot comment on that, but we went here for dinner and drinks and had a great time. We had both appetizers and dinner and everyone in our group was extremely pleased with the food. The decor was excellent. It was a typical Africa thatched roof building. The room had some very nice mounts that we took the time to admire.

After dinner we bellied up to the bar. The owner and his wife were working. We had a very interesting time talking about our hunting trip and them sharing some of their experiences. Their friendship was sincere and they made us feel right at home.

It was a very memorable dinner.

We stayed at the Southern Comfort Lodge for one night on a recent trip to Zimbabwe. It is conveniently located - close to the centre of town, but not too close! The rooms are spotlessly clean, very quiet and comfortable. The little chalets are situated in a lovingly tended garden. We felt very welcome and ate all our meals in the little restaurant - good food, a friendly atmosphere and professional service. I would definitely choose to stay there again.

I have had reason to stay in Bulawayo on business on more than one occasion. I would highly recommend Southern Comfort Lodge as a safe, well maintained and extremely comfortable place to base yourself in while on business in Bulawayo.
I found the hosts to be extremely helpful and went out of their way to assist me and my colleagues during our stay. They were also extremely obliging with regard to the food & meal times and I was never disappointed with the quality of the food offered.

The southern comfort lodge in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe is wonderful. The grounds are kept like a huge English garden. The rooms are very nice. The managing team of Shannon and Kevin Williams go out of their way to assist. The meals are delicious.

Excellent staff and attention to detail. This lodge is clean and has a very safe and relaxed atmosphere. They serve the best cup of tea! The “Sneaky Rat Pub” feels like home where you sit for hours and hear stories of travelers from around the globe. We loved it and will go back on our next adventure to Africa.

It featured only a barren patch of sparse bush and a breached dam; it was unfenced, dry and dusty, with a meagre supply of water and a lonely farmhouse and stable yard, built originally in the 1920s. Since those early days, Craig and Lesley have fostered and created a dream – today, the Estate features a large dam, lush green gardens, a prolific borehole, a six-chalet lodge, conference centre and campground. As they say, from a tiny seed stems a great tree!The Estate boasts a cool, calm atmosphere, offering peace and tranquillity to all who visit – a welcome haven from the chaos of everyday life. Craig and Lesley, having begun all those years ago, still reside on the property and eagerly welcome all who happen to pass their way. They have two children, a son, Scott and a daughter, Tanya.Southern Comfort Estate has been a long time in the making, and we are still striving for the highest levels of perfection. There are numerous plans and projects for the future, and we would like to invite you to see for yourself what big dreams can achieve… For inspiration, and relaxation, welcome to SOUTHERN COMFORT ESTATE ... more   less
